Parensen (Lower Saxony)

Location of Parensen in Lower Saxony

Parensen is a district of Nörten-Hardenberg in the Northeim district in Lower Saxony .

Geographical location

Parensen is on the edge of the Leinegraben , southwest of Nörten-Hardenberg. The Leine flows to the east, the Harste flows through the village .


The first written mention of Parensens is in a document of Otto III. in which the king gave his sister Sophia 30 Hufen land in several places in the Leinegau, including Peranhuson as the first place . The place name contains a personal name that is accepted as Pero and may have developed from the short name Bero ("bear") by tightening the initial sound .

In the course of the 14th century numerous transfers of goods took place by the Lords of Parensen. So they sold the monastery of St. Peter in Norten a good and 6 acres, the monastery Marie stone three hooves , two courtyards and a meadow and gave the Heiligenstädter Martinstift the tithe of Mängelrode. In 1343 the Lords of Plesse and those of Rosdorf received 2 ½ Hufen zu Parensen, in 1351 a “Sattelhof with the dyke” went to the von Plesse, six years later the Lords of Parensen transferred two Hufen with a yard to the Marienstein Monastery. The property of those at Parensen in the course of the 15th century was 1 ½ Hufen with a large saddle yard at the churchyard, which was a Plessian fiefdom , as well as two other yards and various small pieces of land.

In 1447 Duke Otto Cocles enfeoffed the Lords of Plesse with half the village and half the court in Parensen. During the Thirty Years War , in 1626, the place was infected and burned. 44 years later, in 1670, the existence of a school in Parensen is reported for the first time.

In the map of the Kurhannoverschen Landesaufnahme , 35 fireplaces were recorded in Parensen in 1784. In 1805 the future pastor Ernst August Hermann Wilhelm Nolte was born here, and in December 1910 321 residents lived in the village.

On March 1, 1974 Parensen was incorporated into the Nörten-Hardenberg area.

  • The Parensen estate on the eastern edge of the village is U-shaped with an opening to the street. The manor house opposite the street was built in 1848 as a tenant house and extended by two axes in 1921. In the east (on the left of the street) there is a massive farm building with a crippled hipped roof across the street , in the west the courtyard is bordered by a half-timbered barn with a longitudinal passage, which was built in 1738 and moved here from Moringen in 1750 . In 1764 Börries von Münchhausen auf Moringen became the owner of the estate, which was managed by tenants. After the death of Börries Freiherr von Münchhausen in 1945, his stepson Dr. Crusius inherited the Parenser estate, who bequeathed it to the descendants of Börries von Münchhausen's sister from the von Breitenbuch family , who still manage it today.


The L 555 runs through Parensen . The A 7 runs directly on the eastern edge of the village , the next junction is 2 km away at Nörten-Hardenberg. The next train station is also in Nörten-Hardenberg.
